Book Excerpt: 
. . .e was astir early, for not only was a happy day promised, but there was Frisky, the runaway, to be looked over. Mr. Richard Bobbsey, Freddie's father, left on an early train for Lakeport, and would not come back to Meadow Brook until Saturday afternoon.

"Let me go out and see Frisky," Freddie insisted, even before his breakfast had been served. "I want to be sure it's her."

"Yes, that's her," Freddie admitted, "'cause there's the rope that cut my hands when I was a real fireman!"

But Frisky didn't seem to care a bit about ropes or firemen, but just chewed and chewed like all cows do, as if there was nothing in this world to do but eat.

"Come on, sonny," called Dinah. "You can help me pick de radishes fo' breakfast," and presently our little boy, with the kind-hearted maid, was up in the garden looking for the best radishes of the early crop.

"See, Freddie," said Dinah. "De red ones show above de ground. And . . . Read More

Since my sister was so good as to share her summer cold with me, I was not feeling well on Sunday. So, I decided I wanted to read something that was easy, fun, and not emotional, this book fit the bill.

I remember how much I loved this when I was younger. I read these on my own and my mom read the...more

The Bobbsey Twins in the Country by Laura Lee Hope (Grosset and Dunlap 1950) (Fiction - Children's). This is actually the second installment in the Bobbsey Twins series. The children find adventures on a farm in the country during summer vacation. My rating: 7/10, finished 1965.

yah, ternyata memang kita belum bisa menilai dengan baik hanya dengan membaca satu buku saja. Dalam buku kedua ini, seperti saya sebutkan dalam review Bobbsey Twins of Lakeport, saya menyukai ide dua pasang anak kembar. always like twin^^ dan ternyata dalam buku ini orang tua mereka pun kembaran....more

I really did enjoy this one. The Bobbsey's head to the country for some wonderful summertime adventures - and yes a little bit of mystery. I guess one of the things I enjoyed best was the real feel of citizenship in these books. You see the kids helping a neighbor get their crop in on time, or le...more

The second book of the Bobbsey Twins is more exciting than the first one for the primary reason that the setting is in the countryside. You can just imagine the vast field as a playground for children. For the twins Bert and Nan and Freddie and Flossie, there are just so many things to do; not to...more

When I was growing up I had three Bobbsey Twins books - the first, second, and third in the series, published by Whitman, copyrighted in 1950/1953, though mine were probably printed in the 60's. I think these were close to the originals published at the turn of the 20th century.

Some people may co...more

Hewoo. I didn't REALLY like the book :/ Byeeeeeee :DDDDDD

I'm curious to see a more recent edition, because mine from the 70s is full of casual racism and situations that just wouldn't fly today. Kid liked the story, though, and asked for the next one.

I read every Bobbsey Twins adventures I could get my hands on from the age of 9 through 11. Summers were wonderful and I could borrow from the library and read these books. I could borrow 8 books every 2 weeks. Soon, I needed more than that and had to fight the librarian for more books. Now, I ca...more

I read the first version of this book, I believe it was drastically changed when reprinted in the 1940s (or possibly 1960s). As a result, the plotline described on this website is in NO way similar to the book I just read.

The original, from around the turn of the century, was quite good! It is a...more
